JARDINES DE ALFABIA
With a small pond with water lilies…
With a clear influence of English landscaping.
The access consists of a wide avenue, or Roman “paseo de salon”, with three lanes of large plane trees, that reaches the “Clastra” ( the typical “patio” of Majorcan country houses of a certain importance, called “possesions” ).
At the end of an avenue of palm trees is the facade that gives access to the most emblematic feature of the garden: the pergola with its water fountains, reconstructed at the beginning of the eighteenth century. Half of its length is adorned with twenty-four stone hydras.
The numerous water jets cross one another, turning the shimmer and murmur of the water into a real gift for the senses.
Moving along, we reach a part of the garden remodeled in the mid-nineteenth century, with a clear influence of English landscaping, leafy and shady. This part holds the Jardinet de la Reina (The Queen’s little garden) so called because it was conceived because of Queen Elizabeth II’s stay in Alfabia.
The lower garden has a tropical flavor and a small pond with water lilies. Here we can find a wide array of palm trees from which the “garballons” stand out, a protected species that typical from Mallorca.
Wisely integrated in its natural environment, the variety of styles has not meant a hodgepodge but rather a harmony difficult to attain. Facing the main façade, palm trees rise solemn and majestic, regardless of time passing by.
BAR & CAFETERIA AREA
Take a break…
Jardines de Alfabia is a great place day and night, giving us the best sensations to enjoy a drink or a snack; take a freshly squeezed orange or lemon juice in the shade of palm trees and be surrounded by centenarian wisteria plants and wild flowers.
Feel the quietness of the lake, its water lilies and the sound of water mixed with the soft classical music in the background, while savoring one of the cakes we offer our visitors or having a snack in the sun, in the middle of nature. All your senses will be filled with peace
The gardens offer an area to watch native animals.
As a historic finca and lovers of the environment and the characteristic fauna and flora of the Balearic Islands, more specifically the Sierra de Traumanta, we breed the typical black pig for the traditional “matanza” that is carried out during the winter months to obtain the famous “sobrasadas”. You can also find Mallorcan and Ibizan goats, as well as pea cocks, ducks and other poultry.
The Balearic Islands are one of the zones with the highest number of native breeds, due to its island position and minimal contact with species from outside the island.
